I responded to your follow up comment and the performance figures you claimed there AFTER stating you made the right choice by looking at the overclocked bench. I conceded on that point already.Man, I don't know why you are going off on a tangent, especially when you ended up agreeing with my original comment(which you tried to counter). Your response was specifically to my comment:
Uh, yes you can. There is a way to distinguish - physical cores get loaded first, then logical ones afterwards. Have you ever actually run the benchmark yourself? It always does the same thing ever time. Physical cores first, logical ones second. So in the context of ICL-U and Renoir:Obviously we can all see that userbenchmark's "8 cores" isn't really 8 physical cores otherwise the max, "64 cores" won't improve. There's no way to distinguish between cores and threads when the program supports anything between 1 and Max. For simplicity's sake we take note of ST results, and MT.
UB : ICL-U - RNR
1 core: 1 core - 1 cores
2 cores: 2 cores - 2 cores
3 cores: 3 cores - 3 cores
4 cores: 4 cores - 4 cores
5 cores: 4 cores 1 thread - 5 cores
6 cores: 4 cores 2 threads - 6 cores
And you get the idea. This is fully repeatable, every time you do the benchmark.
Fair enough. But I mean, I already conceded on this point, so w/e.There are laptops beyond the Spectre and XPS you know? You just didn't look hard enough.
The HP Pavillions, Inspirons, and the unnamed Lenovos you can find with Icelake. Many don't use LPDDR4x memory. Heck, many don't even include a second memory channel! Yes and they are DDR4-2666. And I can find them in userbenchmark too. Just look at bandwidth figures. And they will impact CPU performance.
